I love Pilot Iroshizuku inks, so far I haven’t met one I didn’t like. Let’s take a look at Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-ryoku aka Forest Green.
Shin-ryoku is a pretty medium green.
In large swabs there is lots of pretty shading and some red sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in all nib sizes.
I used a TWSBI Eco Transparent Green with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wetter then average flow.
Overall, I really enjoy Pilot Iroshizuku inks, and this is another great one. I love the color and it has some pretty shading and sheen too.
